No Juno for Anciients

A local band with members from Mission was up for a Juno Award

Local band The Anciients didn’t get the nod at the Juno Awards this past Sunday.

The band – which is comprised of two Mission men, Chris Dyck and Ken Cook, along with Aaron Gustafson and Mike Hannay – were nominated for the best metal/hard music album of the year, with their record, Heart of Oak.

Edging out the competition was Protest the Hero, which took the honour for its album Volition.
